BENEFITING: Tusk

Northern Rangelands Trust

THE STORY:

Community conservation is the fastest growing grassroots conservation movement in East Africa. This is a movement that is empowering local people to link wildlife conservation to better pasture, higher income, and the growth of sustainable businesses. This is putting more children in school, empowering women through jobs and financial literacy, and building the capacity of rural communities to lift themselves out of poverty. 

Your donation helps keep this movement alive - thank you!

Please note that all funds raised online are channelled through our close working partner - The Tusk Trust. As such, the ‘thank you’ message you receive will be from them, but you can rest assured that all your generosity will go directly to NRT!

More About NRT

There are now 33 community conservancies in northern Kenya. These are areas of land owned and managed by the indigenous communities that live there. The Northern Rangelands Trust is an umbrella organisation that supports these conservancies with funding, training and peace building initiatives. NRT conservancies cover approximately 16,900 square miles, and are home to some 480,000 people, not to mention some amazing animal species.  

NRT is about bringing communities together to manage their land for the beneift of wildlife and livestock. It's about diversifying family income so that communities don't have to rely so heavily on unsustainable harvesting of natural resources. It's about building peace in a region once frought with violence. It's about preserving iconic species that are facing threat or extinction elsewhere in Africa. 

NRT has seen communities work to reduce elephant poaching on their land by 53% since 2012. Over 7,800 square miles are now being managed for the benefit of wildlife and livestock equally. Almost 2,000 students recieved bursaries through conservation revenue in 2015. 700 community wildlife rangers carry out anti-poaching and wildlife monitoring patrols, as well as support peace efforts. This is large-scale conservation with impact. And it's only getting bigger. Read more about these impacts here.
